The action-packed conference, presenting the latest in new treatments and research concerning eating disorders, takes place from February 7 – 10, 2019 in Palm Desert, California at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort.
Seven keynote speakers, a multitude of workshops, pre-conference sessions and special events make up the Symposium's program. In addition, the winners of the "Imagine Me Beyond What You See" Body Image Mannequin Art Competition are showcased. In its eighth year, this unique art competition is currently receiving submissions.
"With record attendance expected, the networking opportunities will certainly result in some amazing connections and even more amazing friends," says Bonnie Harken, Managing Director at the iaedp™ Foundation.
The 2019 iaedp™ Symposium offers five days of training sessions and instructive presentations. Highlights of the more than 60 presentations include trauma in eating disorders, childhood obesity, eating disorders and the brain, eating disorders and the prevalence of exercise, positive body image, transgender youth and body image and insights into Binge Eating Disorder, among many more.
Due to its extreme popularity, iaedp™ will once again offer its pre-conference sessions onsite at the 2019 Symposium.
